I agree with the above.

Sounds to me to be certainly an over propped boat.

if your going 2 knots above hull speed, your engine is doing the required work.

The only indication of an engine issue is the lack of black smoke at full power, BUT that to me does not rule out over propping.

But all your mechanics are certainly happy.

I would not worry about it and I still don't like the idea of WOT in other than cases of I need to get the hell out of here NOW
